Clinic EFT vid medicinska fakulteten på universitetet i Lyon-Est, Frankrike

Ytterligare ett steg framåt för knackningen: Nu erbjuds en kurs i Clinical EFT vid medicinska fakulteten på universitetet i Lyon-Est, Frankrike.

“This is a significant step in helping to bring greater awareness of and acceptance for energy psychology in clinical practice throughout the world.

As described in the program, “despite recognition of the effectiveness of brief therapies based on the principle of evidence-based medicine, there are very few university degree courses.

Brief therapies provide significant assistance in managing distress and improving many symptoms quickly and effectively.

The main objective of this DU is to provide basic training to caregivers and to enable them to discover and learn to start using four types of therapies in their professional environment: Ericksonian hypnosis, EMDR, Clinical EFT and Interpersonal Therapy.”

An Initial Investigation of Neural Changes in Overweight Adults with Food Cravings after Emotional Freedom Techniques

Background: This pilot randomised clinical trial by
Stapleton P, Buchan C, Mitchell I, McGrath Y, Gorton P, Carter B. investigated the effect of Clinical Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) on brain activation in response to food craving stimuli using functional magnetic resonance imaging. EFT is a brief stress reduction technique which involves stating a cognitive statement with stimulation of acupressure points with a tapping technique.

Method: Fifteen overweight/obese adults were allocated to a four-week group EFT treatment or control condition and completed a measure of food craving. Random repeating images of high-calorie food designed to engage parts of the brain were presented during the pre and post fMRI scans.

Results: The Group x Time interaction for food cravings were significant for the EFT group when compared to the controls. Participant mean scores decreased by 18% for the EFT group and 5% for the control group. Brain activity was mapped using fMRI measures, and there was relative deactivation in the Superior Temporal Gyrus and lateral orbito-frontal cortex for the EFT treatment group only. The control group however, showed continued activation in these areas.

Conclusion: The findings indicated EFT may decrease limbic region brain activity and reduce food related symptoms in overweight/obese individuals. This study also illuminates the neurological mechanisms at work behind the many successful outcome studies of EFT for weight loss. Recommendations for more comprehensive trials are discussed.

New Swedish literature study on EFT tapping

Filip Lundkvist, student at Karolinskas physiotherapeut programme has recently published his final work, “Effekter av Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) vid behandling av posttraumatiskt stresssyndrom.”
(“Effects of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) in the treatment of post-traumatic stress syndrome.”)

Filip hopes this study will contribute to a Swedish foundation for EFT to be included in conentional healthcare in Sweden, and give direction for further research topics.

It is a well written study and I certainly share Filips aim. Help us share it with relevant decision makers in need of backup material. I have sent it to the Swedish “KAM utredningen” already.

From fishfobia to swimming across the lake in less than half an hour! 

I had an interesting case this summer:

  • We went to the lake with friends.
  • Oppressive heat: 33 degrees Celsius and moist in the air.
  • It turned out that one of the friends had a fish phobia, and had hoped for sand beach with clear water visibility. 
  • Unfortunately she was greated with dark water, rocks and some fishes at the shore.
  • Obviously she decided to opt out of bathing in spite of the oppressive heat.
  • I offered to do EFT Tapping on the shore on her fish phobia.
  • Approx 15-20 minutes later we swam across the entire lake together, feeling indeed very happy. ???

She could have died…

An incident in Sweden with a happy ending:
Det blev minst sagt lite spännande härom kvällen när jag var med familjen på restaurang Amazon när en kvinna bakom mig på restaurangen trillade av stolen med våldsamma kramper. Plötsligt ser jag en krampande hand ligga vid min fot (!) och servitörer och ordningsvakter komma farande.
 
Hon var alldeles krum, med stelt utsträckta armar och krampartade händer, glasartad blick och var i stort sett okontaktbar. Kraftiga spasmer gick genom hennes kropp.
 
Hon rosslade och hade tilltagande andningssvårigheter som vi tog på största allvar eftersom hennes kille sa att hon var allergisk mot fisk, nötter och ”en massa saker”
 
Dottern Maria Bern gick runt i restaurangen och frågade efter allergimedicin efter jag hade högt ropat ut en fråga om EPIPEN eller allergimedicin.
 
Mats Bern (maken min) styrde kvinnans pojkvän med sunt förnuft att lugnt samla ihop och söka grejor medan jag körde Verbal First Aid och TTT knackning på kvinnan själv i framstupa sidoläge.
 
I stället för att fortsätta eskalera i stelhet, kraftiga kramper och andningssvårigheter så:
* slappnade kroppen av en hel del,
* andningen blev djupare och stabilare,
* krampskoven mindre våldsamma,
* ansiktsfärgen blev bättre, och
* hon började lyssna så att hon allafall kunde svara att hon aldrig haft just andningssvårighet med allergierna förr och att hon inte ägde nån EPIPEN.
 
Ambulanspersonal hämtade henne efter ca tio minuter. Läget var stabilt när hon åkte iväg med ambulansen.
 
Mina egna barn och jag har ju haft likartade symptom av våra födoämnesöverkänsligheter, dock aldrig så häftiga som detta.
 
Servitören kom sedan och var chockad. Kvinnan hade inte nämnt några allergier vid beställningen. Jag hade bett honom skriva ned vad som serverats henne och lämna med till ambulanspersonalen. Men han fick tyvärr inte prata så länge med oss innan han blev inropad av köket.
 
Jag vill rikta ett stort tack till Ulf Sandström och Gunilla Hamne som ordnade kursen i Verbal Första Hjälpen som jag just gått kurs på och den tidigare kursen i TTT – Trauma Tapping Technique!!!
 
Och stort tack också till min lugna och stadiga familj som snabbt anpassar sig efter läget och effektivt hjälper till där det behövs.
 
Ulf skrev sen till mig:
“…Ett fantastiskt exempel på hur liv kan räddas, Sara.
Om paniken fortsatt kunde hon ha kvävts…”

Changing Your Paradigm Through Positive, Repetitive Affirmations

Let’s talk about using autosuggestions to change your paradigm. Autosuggestion is, actually, positive, repetitive affirmations or listening to recorded self-talk. The best way to use autosuggestion is when your mind is in the best state for reprogramming.

When is this? If we would measure the brainwaves during the best reprogramming states, we would find that the EEG shows alpha level brainwaves. This is a natural state which we drift into when we daydream, those types of daydreams when you are completely unaware of what’s going on around you or when you are completely fascinated by a movie, for example.

Alpha brainwave levels also appear during meditation or hypnotic trance. Alpha brainwave levels also happen naturally 2 times a day:

  • just as you are falling asleep and
  • when you wake up.

After I certified as a life success consultant and learned these techniques, I always use this method when I am to attain new goals. Yes, all goal achievers use autosuggestions, either consciously or subconsciously.

I am also a very driven person and don’t want to waste energy and time, so, I use autosuggestions every night. As I go to bed, it is not a question of whether I shall use autosuggestion or not. It is merely a question of which one I shall use. I use each script at least 2-3 weeks before changing.

Nowadays, there are also applications built in into iPods/iPhones/iPads, mobile phones and buttons in alarm clocks that enable you to listen to your chosen audio when you wake up. Take advantage of these innovations in technology to incorporate autosuggestions in your daily life. Imagine what a difference to wake up to your chosen ideal state, instead of, the doom and gloom of the news. What signal do you want to send into your subconscious when you are most receptive?

Before, I woke up checking the day’s news. Nowadays, I have set the alarm a quarter to seven, because, at that time there is someone I can listen to, who’s chosen to talk and reflect over a particular subject, often very inspiring or thoughtful reflections, that bring a good discussion around the breakfast table with the family. Checking out the day’s news is now pushed at a later time while commuting to work.

So, the most efficient way to get these autosuggestions working for you is to buy or record them and listen to them on a daily basis, at the ideal reprogramming times.
